Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, representing Detroit in his Tigers cap, looked strong in his first public passing display since undergoing shoulder surgery in January.

“It felt good,” Stafford said of his shoulder. “It was fun. We just had a good time out here today — nothing too crazy, just fooling around a little bit. It’s good to be back here at Sanford Stadium in front of these great fans. This was a great turnout and a great day to be out here.”

Up against fellow Georgia quarterback legends and NFL veterans Eric Zeier, David Greene and D.J. Shockley, Stafford threw 12 passes in the competition and turned in the top score in two of the three events.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Falcons backup quarterback D.J. Shockley might have blown a major opportunity to establish himself in the NFL on Friday night.

He entered the game in relief of Matt Ryan and got to play with the first-team offensive line in the second quarter.

He nearly had two passes intercepted and did have one intercepted by St. Louis linebacker James Laurinaitis that led to Rams scoring a field goal.

Shockley played three series and was 2-of-6 for seven yards and one interception. The offense picked up only one first down while Shockley was in the game, and that was on a 14-yard run by Norwood.
